I used to crochet and have since taught my 11 year old. Fun to learn together, but she decided she wanted to try to knit, something I have never done. So, we purchased the Usborne Book "How to Knit" and it is awesome. What a great easy way to learn. Here is a link to the book you can cut and paste if you are interested http://www.ubah.com/ecommerce/details.asp?sid=A1178&g... or contact me at ____@____.com and I can send you info on the book
Have fun learning!
